Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our life whole.
--Roger Caras

Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
--Khalil Gibran

You can't see anything properly while your eyes are blurred with tears.
--C. S. Lewis

Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our lives.
--John Galworthy

Dogs lives are too short.  Their only fault, really.
--Agnes Sligh Turnbull
